distress. our foreign policy is inseparable from supporting international law. we must assist the genuine, moderate and democratic forces in syria who are in dire need of help and who feel abandoned by the international community. the longer this conflict goes on, the more human suffering, persecution of minorities, radicalization and sectarian conflict there will be. despite these three compelling arguments, there will still be those who say britain should have nothing to do with syria. but we cannot look the other way while human rights are flouted, and it would be height of irresponsibility to ignore potential threat to our own security. so i want to explain to the house today the next step in increasing our support to the syrian people, and i emphasize there may well have to be further steps. we have contributed nearly 140 million pounds in humanitarian aid so far. this is funding foot, clean drinking water, medical stabs, blankets and shelter for many tens of thousands of people. we're supporting the syrian national coalition's own efforts to deliver aid inside syria, and we will see
. the national employment law project actually warns that the budget cut will have a ripple effect, also impacting funding for state agencies and potentially making it harder for people to get help finding jobs or to have their claims processed when they are looking for every dollar. brianna? >> are there concerns about the economy in general, just the bigger economy and the impact this will have? >> you know, as you know, it depends on who you ask about this. we talked to a couple of economists. one said, look, anything that makes it more difficult for people to who have been unemployed for a long time to get back in the job market, that's not going help the economy at all. however, we talked with another economist who says these mandatory budget cuts are part of the solution to finding how you cure these long-term budget problems. listen in. >> i think to solve the deficit problem, everyone's going to have to get their ox aboard to an extend. these extended unemployment benefits are a subsidy. we need to cut all subsidies in the federal government, frankly, if we're going to get this d
and activities of international law and the domestic laws of many other countries. for north korea, these criminal activities are viewed as necessary to maintain the power of the regime without regard for the fact they are corrosive to international law and order. the question is what steps can we take to combat north korea's illicit dvds encounter after its be used to pressure north korea to abandon nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. i heard on the news this morning the agreement has been made extensively with china to punish north korea for its missile launching nuclear tests. i hope china will not do what it's done in the past and agree to sanctions and then just erode the sanctions so the sanctions never took hold. i hope china will finally understand the north korean regime is a threat to stability in that region of the world and because as chairman pointed out, north korea is a rogue state, helping countries like syria try to obtain nuclear weapons to collaborate with iran. i want this committee to know that on this issue, there is not a millimeters worth of diff
which the president signed into law two years ago this month have already extended the life of the medicare trust fund to at least 2024. going forward the budgettary challenges posed by the medicare program will be largely contingent on the pace of health care costs. now, a balanced approach to addressing our fiscal challenges must also recognize the importance of timing. the recovery is still fragile. weak growth in europe and asia are eliminating our exports. consumption remains constrained as households are still recovering from the loss of $16 trillion of wealth from the financial crieses. -- crisis. we haven't regained all of the $16 trillion that was lost although we've made substantial progress. fiscal policy should remain the focus in supporting the ongoing recovery. at the same time, we should stake steps to address the deficit in a balanced way in the intermediate and long-term. the sequester is poorly timed and badly targeted. before the sequester, i used to say that we faced two risks when it comes to the government budget. on the one hand, we can lower the defic
terror attack in u.s. history. now the son-in-law of osama bin laden is in the very city where al qaeda struck its deadly blow. he's now being held in new york city by federal authorities after being captured in jordan last week. cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns is coming in right now. what do you know? >> a member of the al qaeda inner circle, 47 years old, he's married to one of osama bin laden's daughter. he was born in kuwait but stripped from of his citizenship after the 9/11 attacks, though it's not clear at all how much, if anything, he had to do with the 9/11 attacks. he was taken into custody and held in jordan and apparently turned over to u.s. authorities only last week and that is how he made his way to new york. >> this is a guy who was a high school teacher in kuwait who shortly before 9/11 popped up in afghanistan and started, you know, speaking in videotapes, made a number of threatening comments and disappeared. he's had, as i'm air wa, no operation in al qaeda or in the decade since. obviously there are civil charges against him. >> he is expected to app
and superintendent with permission from the state board and state superintendent to ask for a waiver from state laws for innovative programs. we called it an innovation law or the flex law. its passed both chambers. and went to conference committee and at the conference committee level, a nine page bill became a 28 page bill and it still had the flex components, but then this whole new concept of a tuition tax credit program was added. >> i've heard you call this an anti-public education bill. but as i understand it and please correct me if i'm wrong, it's not just to send them to another private school. they could send them to another successful public school district, could they not? >> that is an option. i don't think i've used that term. i think that that is one of the criticisms of the bill. and let me tell you, we in the education community understand that we need to address the problem of low performing schools. and there were several other bills pending that would have addressed that. so we have problems with how this legislation was enacted, buts also we're not sure it's going to produce th

try to expand background checks beyond what the law currently requires. we have individual kwroeft hearing that ivideo of the hearing going on in the senate judiciary committee. buyers have to pass a background check if they by a gun from the 50,000 federally licensed dealersers. if you buy from a gun show, personally or online you don't have to pass a background check. that's what this law could change. some republicans say the law would not be effective. >> they fail to recognize that criminals won't be any more likely to submit to expanded background checks than they are currently. they will go around supposedly universal checks to steal guns or buy them in the black market. >> reporter: some republicans also are concerned that expanding background checks would lead to a national registry of gun owners, which they oppose. jon. jon: so do any of these bills have a chance of getting through the full senate? >> reporter: well, all of the bills may possible the democratically-controlled senate judiciary committee today, but the full senate is another matter. accepts and democrats se
that effectively there is no availability of abortions. when we talk about the laws, there are many things that are blocking access to abortion besides the actual laws being passed. this is just the latest of what has been a pretty steady stream of state level efforts to roll back that access. >> and, gale, this is international women's day, and we are talking about a situation where in parts of the world we've seen what's happened in india with the horrific rape and the way women are gang-raped and the justice system not coming to their defense -- or coming to their defense belatedly. women in other parts of this world have so much more critical life and death decision and threats than we face here at home. >> well, and i think that gets at the whole -- going back to the sheryl sandberg. her point is the world is ruled by men, and women are not better off because of that, and i think the argument is that even in places around the world where women are facing incredibly difficult situations, violence against women, rape, all kinds of domestic violence, you know, two-thirds of this world's
a severe mental illness. i was able to go to law school and establish it for myself. in terms of having other views on the panel, it could leave -- lead to an increase in stigma. my other point is that the way that we're looking at mental health services from the perspective of inpatient hospitalization, they have been looking at community-based care. host: let's let the congressman reply. guest: some people in america believe in such things as the pure services -- pierre services. they work very well with alcohol and -- peer services. they were very hat -- very well with alcohol and drug abuse. severe violence, there is high risk. the other reason that we're not having someone with severe mental illness on a panel, that is not what this panel is about. this is about telling congress people what it is like for families. that is important. i want members of congress the year from parents. since we are talking about severe mental illness that relates to violence, i will not bring someone out of prison to talk about what they kill people. we are not going to do that. that is a dangerous si
